Hyderabad, 11 August 2018: Critical care team of Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) is conducting a symposium, Neurological Intensive Care Explored (NICE), to help healthcare professionals. The symposium is aimed at improving the skills of emergency and critical care experts and neuro physicians. This 2-day workshop cum symposium scheduled on 11th and 12th of August, 2018.

 

This program has been endorsed by the Neurocritical Care Society of USA and will certify the participant doctors in “Emergency Neurological Life Support”. This program is to help the healthcare professionals improve patient outcomes during the critical first hours (Golden hour) of a neurological emergency. Also, in a workshop after the symposium, national and international faculty will train doctors in early detection and optimal management of complications arising from the initial neurological insult, using locally available resources. This will help accelerate the recovery of the patients.

 

Dr. Sambit Sahu, HOD & Consultant Critical care, KIMS Hospitals, Secunderabad, says, “This symposium is to meet the educational needs of primary care physicians, emergency room physicians, Hospitalists and other healthcare professionals involved in the critical care and management of patients with Neurological Disability. This condition is a hidden epidemic. In India, nearly 2 million people end up with some neurological deficit, annually. The increasing incidence of Road Traffic Accidents and rising trend in life style associated diseases like Diabetes and Hypertension has resulted in an alarming increase in Neurological complications, like Strokes, Brain Haemorrhage and Paralysis. A sizable number of these patients end up with some disability or inability to carry out their daily activities. Some become totally bed-ridden and dependent on their family members. This puts a huge emotional and financial burden not only on the families but on society as a whole.”

 

“In this condition, the role of Acute Care physicians, Emergency physicians, Neuro physicians and Critical Care specialists is of utmost importance. If they can provide optimal treatment in the first hour or “Golden Hour” of a neurological insult, the predicted course of recovery can be considerably improved,” he added.

 

This symposium along with workshop is being attended by doctors from many hospitals and sr. students of medical colleges. The participants who attended the session opined that the sessions were not only useful but also gave us the international exposure through the faculty who taught us latest advances.
